Firming Ritual from The Body Shop | Review


Get the green light for summer

balance body and mind

On the 18th of July The Body Shop launched their new collection to balance body and mind. The new Firming Ritual infused with a blend of fruit extracts to empower skin, body and mind with a three-step firming spa ritual. 
There are 4 new products in the Firming Ritual collection and I’ve been trying them out for the past couple of weeks.
french grape seed scrub
Grape seeds are prized for their high polyphenol content, this is an antioxidant that is known to help firm the skin and it’s one of the main ingredients in this exfoliating body scrub.
French Grape Seed Scrub infused with grape seed powder from France and Community Trade organic sugar from Paraguay to exfoliate and refine the skin.
This product is my favourite, it really does work, you can see the result right after the ritual. Skin feels smoother and softer. After using this scrub you might not feel like using body cream at all, because it is so moisturised and nourished.
ethiopian green coffee cream
I’m a big fan of The Body Shop Body Butters and this one is perfect for summer. Ethiopian Green Coffee Cream has slightly different texture, it feels light and not greasy at all. Enriched with high-in-caffeine organic Ethiopian green coffee and Community Trade olive oil from Italy to help skin feel firmer and smoother.
thai makrut lime firming oil
Soybean Oil and Grapeseed Oil are the main ingredients of the new Thai Makrut Lime Firming Oil. Grapeseed Oil really helps to firm your skin and with marula oil it nourishes the skin too. I use it with Indian Turtle Massager to stimulate blood flow on problems areas.


I really love all of these four new Firming Ritual products from The Body Shop Spa Of The World collection, but my favourite, as I mention before, is French Grape Seed Scrub.
Have you tried any of these products yet?




Natural Hair care from California | REVERIE


Today I want to share with you my thoughts about new products I've tried and absolutely fell in love with. I'm talking about REVERIE, a new natural hair care brand to the UK, which is available now on www.cultbeauty.co.uk.

About REVERIE.
Owned and managed by hair stylist Garrett Markenson and carefully crafted in California using the finest botanical ingredients sustainable sourced from around the world, REVERIE is committed to responsibly sourcing high quality ingredients that are natural, ethical and innovative. The whole reverie line has a lovely, woody, spicy fragrance to it that leans traditionally masculine, but I really like it. And this gorgeous bottles.. 

All REVERIE products are always formulated without: Sodium Lauryl Sulphate, Silicones, Phthalates, Parabens, Glycols, Petrochemicals, Artificial Fragrance, Dyes, Animal Derivatives, T.E.A, D.E.A. All REVERIE products are vegan, Leaping Bunny certified cruelty-free, and gluten free.

EVER Recovery Oil (£50) This is a really powerful stuff.
It contains a luxurious Marula oil which repairs damaged hair, reduces spilt ends and enhances shine. I highly recommend to use it as an overnight treatment or just a tiny drop to your hair, focusing on the ends.


This is the most amazing anti-frizz treatment I've tried! The formula is lightweight and the smell is magical: a fresh, herbal scent. One to two pumps is enough for a full head of hair, you can put it in damp hair and air dry without getting any frizzes or put some in clean hair for a little smoothing! This product helps with breakage, it keeps my hair moisturized and healthy. Super-charged with a rich blend of 16 essential oils, but not greasy at all. 


MARE Mediterranean Sea Mist (£35) is one of the best sea mist on the market. It contains Rice Seed Extract which adds volume, strengthens and helps prevent damage; Algae Extract hydrates, provides vital minerals, enhances shine and protects from environmental damage; Mediterranean Sea Salt amplifies natural texture without drying out the hair.
My hair is very straight but this mist really gives my hair the texture! I just shake it before application and apply to damp hair. You can focus on your roots to add some volume or the length to create this beautiful beach texture.


All products available on www.cultbeauty.co.uk. and there is a free shipping on hair care available till 26/05/17.

Have you tried anything from REVERIE? Let me know! 



Almond Milk & Honey The Body Shop | Review


Make peace with sensitive skin

#LOVENOTWAR

The Body Shop did it again! Another body care range I fell in love with immediately. On the 14th of February The Body Shop launched their new collection for sensitive and dry skin - Almond Milk & Honey, and OMG it is a miracle in a bottle. 
I've tried almost everything from the range and loved it so much. As this range was made for a sensitive skin, it is free from colorants, mineral oil and silicone and it is 100% vegetarian and dermatologically tested. It contains community-trade almond oil from Spain, community-trade honey from Ethiopia, organic almond milk, glycerin, soybean oil and shea butter and hypoallergenic fragrance.
Let's start with the packaging, it is simple and beautiful, all these white bottles look so stylish on my bathroom shelf. 
Next, smell. Amazing! I'm not into sweet almond scents, but this one makes me feel so relaxed and calm. It smells like spa. Moving on to the products.
DOES GOOD, FEELS GOOD
Almond Milk & Honey Soothing & Caring Shower Cream (RRP £5) reminds me of one of my favourite product from The Body Shop - Shea shower cream. It is soap free shower gel, which won't strip your skin of moisture, so you don't need to use any body cream after.
Gently Exfoliating Cream Body Scrub (RRP £15) perfect for dry and sensitive skin. It gently buffs away all dry flakes and leaves you with an adorable soft skin.
Soothing & Restoring Body Lotion (RRP £8.50) protect against uncomfortable tight and itchy skin. Lightweight and fast-absorbing.
Soothing & Restoring Body Butter (RRP £15) enriched with soybean oil and shea butter so you can say goodbye to your dry skin.

Aside from shower cream, scrub, body lotion and butter, the line also includes a cleansing bar, bath milk and hand cream. 
All range smells absolutely divine and it is a real treat to the skin and the senses. The Body Shop Almond Milk & Honey collection launched 14th February 2017 and you can find it here www.thebodyshop.com

NEW Kiehl's Pure Vitality Skin Renewing Cream | Review




NEW Kiehl's Pure Vitality Skin Renewing Cream has a 99.6% naturally-derived formula, it contains two world-renowned wellness ingredients that had a known ability to increase skin's resistance and recovery from damage - New Zealand Manuka Honey and Korean Ginseng Root.
Korean red ginseng root boosts cell turnover and renewal, revealing the bright, glowing skin underneath, it increases skin hydration, barrier function and collagen production. Manuka Honey is valued for its anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties, it repairs and strengthens skin’s protective moisture barrier to shield that new skin from damage.
It is a lightweight cream that smells like honey with vanilla and feels so soothing on my skin. Although I have an oily skin, I tend to have a dry patches on my cheeks during wintertime. I've been trying Pure Vitality Skin Renewing Cream only for a week and my skin feels moisturised, nourished and appears more radiant, so this cream is definitely my MUST for winter. 

The Pure Vitality Skin Renewing Cream (50ml) retails at £49 is available online and will be available in stores from February 8th.

MOLTON BROWN YLANG YLANG COLLECTION

Press the pause button

Molton Brown Ylang-Ylang collection

I know it's only November, but if you don't want to stress this Christmas with last minute shopping, create your list with ideas and gifts now.  And about gifts, recently I got this gorgeous gift set of the Ylang Ylang Collection from Molton Brown just in time for Christmas. Ylang Ylang is inspired by Madagascar. A special blend of yuan zhi extract and Madagascan ylang-ylang oil are believed to calm the senses and bring harmony. The smell of this collection is unbelievable, it takes off all the stress from your mind.

I love this body wash, it forms a creamy rich lather, but never strips the skin and leaves a delicate scent without being overpowering. 
Nourishing body lotion is a MUST-HAVE, it's not just the name, it really does make wonders to your skin.
I've never tried their body scrubs before, so I was really excited and I have to admit it is one of the best scrubs I've ever tried. It contains black vanilla grains and exfoliates really well and at the same time it hydrates your skin. It's like a spa in the tub. Well done, Molton Brown!
A relaxing, indulgent eau de toilette blended with notes of ylang-ylang, cardamom and vanilla, left a sweet honeyed trail of woody notes on your skin, perfect scent for cold weather.

Overall, I can totally recommend to try this gift set, because all products are amazing.


Also there are three limited Christmas editions: Fabled Juniper berries & Lapp Pine, Festive Frankincense & Allspice and Vintage 2016 with Elderflower. Have a look at the candles, they all look fantastic!

Molton Brown Bursting Caju & Lime limited edition review


Molton Brown celebrate summer with their limited edition Bursting Caju & Lime Collection. Inspired by lively Brazil's signature caipirinha cocktail and the upbeat atmosphere of Carnaval. 
Caju & Lime is a lively, joyful, summer scent with a solar burst of lime, grapefruit and orange, an invigorating spearmint heart and base notes of musk and oak moss. It both smells and feels divine.
Capturing Brazil’s vibrancy, this collection offers the perfect remedy to the summer heat, with an energising body wash, nourishing body lotion and invigorating eau de toilette.



"The top notes of caipirinha accord are refreshing with a squeeze of zesty lime, grapefruit, lemon and orange. To lift it even more, a dash of spearmint is added – crisp, just like the cocktail. To give that humid finish, woody fig tree and oak moss mix perfectly with upbeat green galbanum."
                                                                   Jennifer Jambon, 
                                       Principal Perfumer, Molton Brown

Bursting Caju & Lime Shower Gel (£20) like a bottle of bustling Brazilian carnival confetti, it's my favourite shower gel for summer. This joyful zesty concoction is inspired by Brazil’s caipirinha cocktail. Lime, grapefruit, lemon and orange with spearmint and cedar will wake you right up.  Super fresh with antioxidant-rich Caju Fruit extract – which is rich in antioxidants and Vitamin C – this unique blend gives an energizing kick to the mind and body, while leaving the skin feeling fresh and radiant.
The small micro beads helps the oils inside to spread evenly. With a top note of energizing caju fruit, loaded with Vitamin C, a middle note with Mint aroma oil and base note with a huge puff of Lime it is really a bestseller and still it’s limited edition.

Bursting Caju & Lime Body Lotion (£25). I like treating my skin with a luxurious body lotion. Proven to instantly firm and moisturise the skin, the pampering complex instantly comforts and hydrates. Formulated with energising Caju fruit, Lime oil with the scent of caipirinhas, the radiant body lotion is perfect for all skin types.

Bursting Caju & Lime Eau de Toilette (£39) is summer in a bottle. The fragrance features lime, grapefruit, orange, lemon, mint, clary sage, galbanum, cypress, musk and oakmoss. The lime comes through sharply and is complimented so well with the spearmint note. A great fragrance to wear on a summer day, so you can feel Rio’s effervescent carnaval spirit.

So why not re-create your own blend of Brazillian carnival sunshine by creating the classic Caipirinha cocktail?


Just in time for the Rio 2016 Olympics, this Brazil-inspired fragrance makes the perfect refreshing collection to stir your senses this summer. One day I'll jet off to lively Brazil, but for now I'm enjoying my Caju & Lime Bath & Body Collection from Molton Brown.




Colab Dry Shampoo by Ruth Crilly review


Today I'd like to talk about my new favourite product. It has been such a long time I found something so good! 
I'm talking about Colab dry shampoos. Why am I so excited about it? Well, because it leaves my hair fresh and clean without chalky residue and it smells incredible!
Colab Dry Shampoo is a dry shampoo created by Ruth Crilly, a model whom many of you may know as A Model Recommends. 
The Colab Dry Shampoo range comes in two variants: Sheer + Invisible and Extreme Volume.

SHEER + INVISIBLE COLLECTION



Colab Sheer & Invisible dry shampoos help keep hair feeling clean for longer, feature a revolutionary weightless, invisible formula & leave a fabulous veil of fashion fragrance. They’re perfect for all hair types that need an instant boost. Especially for brunettes, because you never see any powder in your hair after using this dry shampoo. Love it! This dry shampoo is really good to use on a second day, when my hair is "just dirty". When my hair is oily, I use Batiste. 

EXTREME VOLUME COLLECTION


Colab Extreme Volume Collection is my favourite! I love using my extreme volume dry shampoo to add volume to my hair. It gives an instant back-combed volume, texture and lift. Perfect for instant day to night looks. 

Have you tried Colab dry shampoos? What's your favourite range?

                                                                                         Kimono-over, Maki Me Happy, Go Go Geisha
